Guess Who’s Coming for Nutcracker!

Dec 01 2015 | Posted in Blog

Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet excitedly welcomes 12 special guests to Nutcracker’s cast, December 19-28 at the Centennial Concert Hall. Following a costume fitting and rehearsal in mid-December, walk on roles grace the stage alongside dancers of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School.


Filbert visited his friends Eleanor and Terri at CTV to personally deliver their walk-on role invitation. They were so excited!

Filbert can never resist paying chocolatier Constance Popp a visit, and this time he brought a walk-on role invitation.
